Short summary
Process prediction of seasonal drought is the goal of our study. We developed a drought prediction model based on atmospheric–oceanic anomalies. It is essentially the synchronous statistical relationship between atmospheric–oceanic anomalies and precipitation anomalies, forced by seasonal climate forecast models. It can predict seasonal drought development very well, despite its weakness in drought severity.
